This is the second time Oris has introduced a commemorative watch for CarlBrashear. Unlike the first generation of simple three-handed functions, the new CarlBrashear Bronze Limited Edition is a chronograph. The case is mainly made of Bronze is inspired by Carl Brashear’s era bronze deep diving helmet. At the same time, Oris also paid tribute to Carl’s challenge of racial discrimination through ‘non-ferrous metals’. Let’s appreciate this CarlBrashear commemorative watch together.

Watch the real shot
This is the second time Oris has introduced a commemorative wristwatch for CarlBrashear. Unlike the simple three-pin function of the first generation, the new CarlBrashear bronze limited edition is a chronograph. Its overall design style inherits Pridex’s classic 65-year replica diving watch.
Dial detail real shot
The symmetrical dial layout and no calendar design give the watch a nostalgic chronograph style. On the right side of the dial is a 30-minute counter and on the left is a small seconds dial. The dial is bright sea blue, perfectly matched with bronze, and echoes CarlBrashear’s deep dive status.
Case, crown and chronograph button details
The watch’s case, crown, bezel and chronograph buttons are made of bronze rarely seen in traditional watchmaking. This is the second time in Oris history since the first CarlBrashear limited edition in 2016. Introducing a bronze watch.
Strap and buckle details
The watch is paired with a vintage brown leather strap, which fits the body of the watch, and the accompanying sense of the age makes that era at your fingertips.
Table bottom real shot
The back of the case back is equally wonderful and cannot be ignored. The stainless steel case is engraved with the traditional deep diving helmet pattern and the inspirational quote of CarlBrashear. The watch is driven by the Oris771 automatic mechanical movement, has a 48-hour power reserve, and presents two parallel chronograph dials on the dial. This movement was adapted from Sellita’s SW510 and was the first time Oris used it.
